    Firefighters in Davidsonville, Maryland, helped a cow get moo-ving after the bovine got stuck in a swimming pool. 

    The cow fell into a swimming pool on the 3800 block of Birdsville Road just after 9 p.m. Tuesday, the Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department says. 

    The firefighters constructed makeshift steps out of cinder blocks, and about an hour and half later, they were able to get the cow out of the pool. 

    But once she was out of the pool, the cow was not able to get up on her own. Crews tried multiple times to get her up, with no luck. 

    Eventually, they made a harness out of fire hose and lifted the cow with the help of a tractor. 

    The cow was moved to a pasture, where she was able to stand up on her own and walk around.
